This nostalgic A&W Drive-In located in a college town is an independent franchise under the A&W brand. This business has been a staple in the community for many years. In fact, the original building was built in 1954. The Current owners built a loyal customer base by providing personalized service and caring about each customer. After serving the community for many years, the owners plan to retire, and they've developed a self-directed staff to position the store well as a turnkey opportunity under new ownership.
